BLOWN IN BY DRAFT
By JACK LAWTON.
(Cop/rljfbt, 1918, Western Newspaper Union.)
Private Vance DoQDette was a
Southern lad by birth. As are many
of our gallant young lads he was
called Into tho service by the draft.
He entered a Southern encampment
in the latter part of March and In
early Muy, with many others, was
transferred to a camp further North.
It was the 12th of May that Vance
of a swltch
V-M - : i -- s i i'r u -it the duty
hours at the switchboard tvvre 0 a. m.
to 12 m., and 0 p. in. to 1 a. m.
One bright Tuesday morning, while
on his duty at the switchboard, won
<lcrlDg how to spend the four-hour re
lief that afternoon, he at last decided
to take a stroll through the vill.ige
of Riverside. The village church, the
store and >tafcs^central oflice were the
Important bulraings. One o'clock that
Tuesday found Vance strolling the
streets of a strange town. Several of
the village lads were In the service,
so a lad In khaki was not an uncom
mon occurrence. "I don't see many
lassies in this vicinity. I guess they
are few and far between," said Vance.
Arriving at the store he entered and
bought a cigar, then gayly pnsscd on
his way. He had not gone far when
he approached the' central office.
Glancing Into the open windows, and
slacking his pace as he did 6o, he saw
the little operator at her post. "Num
ber, please." "Line busy!" "Did you
get him?" "Riverside," he heard the
sweet Utt|e voice saying. "Who is the
proud owner of that 6weet voice?"
"How beautiful she was with that
dark hair. Wish that I might meet
her," said Vance.
As he continued his stroll the Op
erator was still in his mind. He
walked on nearly a mile, then began
his journey homeward. Taking a slip
of paper from hl9 pocket he wrote:
"Vance Donnette, operator at local
camp. Ring up.w On his return by
the central office he walked more
slowly than before. Just at the en
trance to the oflice he let the slip
of paper drop out of his hand. "Hope
that she is lucky enough to find it,"
At five o'clock Einlta Dell, the Riv
erside operator, was preparing to
j leave the oflice. Just as she opened
I the door to depart a slip of paper was
\ "blown In by the draft" (draught) and
dropped o t her feet. Picking it up
j she placed it in her ticket book and
staricil on her way home.
Wednesday morning as Emita was
j lvcording her tickets she found the
paper which she picked up the pre
! vious night. Unfolding it she read:
I "Vance LVmnette. Oporntnr nt local '
camp. Ring up." "Where did It
come from? Who Is Vance Donnette?
1 Guoss I'll ring him up shortly." At
j eleven o'clock Emita rang up the
I local camp. "Is . this Vance Don- (
i net re?" "Yes," was the reply. "This,
Is Emita Dell, the Riverside operator. ?
! I found your pnper in the office. It;
was 'blown In by the draft' (draught), (
so I rung you up." "Blown In by the
aruTir xnraupru;, umi jmiu1
I, too, was 'blown in by the draft.' j
. Thnnk heaven that you found It." On !
I Emlta's inquiry in regard to the i
: origin of the paper Vance reinted t$re
tale of his stroll through Riverside, j
| During their conversation Emita in- j
vited hini to call at the office on the ;
' day of his next relief.
j The next Tuesday afternoon Vance j
?went to the Central office. As lie;
ncared the ofli-ce, instead of slacken- j
ing, hi; li:.su riL<l Iil> pace he was sa'
! anxious to me. t Emita. Entering the,
I office. Emita greeted him with a hand- j
shake, as though they had known j
I each other for years. That afternoon !
! as he sirt there talking to her, the j
j only thought In his mind was: "She i
is the most beautiful of al! girls." He
was obliged to leave the office at
three o'clock, that he might not be
late lu reporting at the camp.
As usual at five o'clock, Vance was
going on duty and Emita was coming
off. "She's a wonder!" Dark hair,
6tt*el gray eyes, cheeks as pink as
roses, and Just about as tall as L
Of all the beauties, she is it!" said he.
"He certainly is a nice looking
youth. So gentlemanly in his ways.
And so refined In Ms language," she
The friendship between Emita and
Vance grew more intimate as the
days passed by. Bach visit helped to
make their friendship more sincere,
until finally Dan Cupid accompanied
Vance on his visits. Apparently Dan
Cupid knows how to do "his bit,"
exceptionally well. One Tuesday
afternoon Instead of Vance taking his
trip to Emlta's, she went to the city
with him. The next morning when
Emita came to work she wore a
sparkling ring on her finger. Conse- [
quently Dan Cupid had not failed to
"do his bit."
Early In October Vance expected to
go "over there." One morning ho
called Emita on the phone. "Say, las
ele, I leave tomorrow for a ten-day j
furlough before going 'over there.*
rifi going home to see mother. Are yon
ready to go as my bride?" "Yes, I'll
be ready," came the reply. The next
morning Vance and Emita left to fin
ish the work commenced by Dan
Cupid. A happy couple were Private
and Mrs. Vance Donnette, as \) ey
i took the train for the -South." Aa^*

Vance whWpered to Einlta: "Aren't
